Previous to her enforced imprisonment and impaired strength, from disease, she had become well and familiarly known, not only in Lansing, but by numerous choice friends in many parts of the State, and many beyond its borders. She early imbibed these interesting traits of character, which showed so conspicuously in her after life. She was a woman of great tenderness of character and was admirably adapted by her many virtues to dignify and adorn domestic life.
From girlhood she exhibited a thirst and most excellent taste for literature of the highest order. She was a constant reader, and with a most remarkable memory, she became proficient in ancient and modern history, which made her a ready source of reference concerning historical events, of which she could give names, dates and events leading up to them and their results. She enjoyed reading the Bible, not only for its spiritual and devotional value, but as a literary work. The characters of Shakespeare were as familiar to her as her own acquaintances and the works of Dickens and other standard novels were to her as household words.
She was a sufferer from consumption for twelve years, and sojourned in this country and in Europe, where the climate promised relief. She was a mem. of the Episcopal ch. and had been Pres. of Lansing Woman’s Club.
